Al Madsen is retiring after 32 years in Maple Grove.

Outgoing Maple Grove City Administrator Al Madsen stood on the street he helped develop.

"Not much is going to happen here," they told Al Madsen. But Madsen, then the city's economic development director, saw potential.
"You have this blank canvas and you could design and shape it," he said of the large northwest metro suburb. "That's been the fun part."
After overseeing the city's unprecedented explosion in development, first as the city's economic development director and then in the top spot as city administrator, Madsen is retiring this fall.
And it turns out, he was right years ago. Over his 32 years with Maple Grove, the city has blossomed into a large suburb, with 64,000 residents, 22,000 households and development now filling 75 percent of its 23,000 acres. The most visible transformation may be the 3 million-square-foot hub of restaurants and retail off Interstate 94 - second in concentration of restaurants and retail in the metro to the Mall of America, Madsen said.

"In my mind, we're a premier city," Madsen said.
The city's northwest corner is still largely undeveloped. And there's the massive gravel mining area, where mounds of gravel tower next to busy roads. After three tries at the State Capitol, Madsen and city leaders got approval to establish a tax-increment financing district to redevelop 600 acres of 1,100 acres of former gravel mining land into offices.
"There's still a lot of development that can happen," Madsen said.
But that will be for the next city administrator. Madsen, who turns 74 in October, plans to spend more time with his wife, two kids and two grandchildren, travel and volunteer.
"It will be tough to leave," he said.
